Obituary of Irving Kaplan



Irving S. (Schlami) Kaplan, age 90 of the Daughters of Sarah Nursing Home, died on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the nursing home. Born and educated in Troy, Irving was an Army Veteran serving in the Korean War. He was employed for many years in sales by the Cincinnati Shoe Corporation and later became a supervisor.   Irving was a long time member of Temple Beth El in Troy.

He enjoyed playing paddle ball and his weekly card games with his friends. Irving resided in Troy for most of his life, later moving to Sunrise, Florida where he resided from 2005 to 2017, eventually returning to the Capital District.


Mr. Kaplan is survived by his loving wife, Rita Aronson Kaplan, his devoted children, Sheri (John) Opitz of Troy and Alan (Nancy) Kaplan of Malta.

Cherished grandfather of Ashley, (David DeNero) Kaplan, Jordan Kaplan and Daniel Kaplan. Great grandfather of Jackson and Carter DeNero. He also leaves many nieces and nephews as well as close friends. Irving was predeceased by 9 siblings.


The family would like to extend its sincere thanks to the nurses and caregivers who extended such kindness to Irv and his family during his stay at Daughters of Sarah. We could rest easy knowing he was in their care when we couldn’t be with him.


Irv’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his family and friends.
